North Sea Walk

The North Sea Walk, Scotland

North Sea Walk

Sometimes, on Sunday afternoon, when everyone is feeling lazy or there is homework to be done, or you have already made a long walk to and from church, no one much wants to go for a walk by the sea.

In such cases as these, it is best to go along anyway.

Because it’s the sea.

And because sometime sooner than you think, the sky over The North Sea will be dark by 4pm on Sunday afternoons.

So if you put on your sweater (jumper) and jacket, pour yourself a cup of tea to go and head on out with the one or two who are willing, you will be glad that you did.

Because on the way, you might find blackberries.

You will walk past the golf courses that overlook the sea.

Eventually, you will have to come out of the shelter and start back towards home, and you may then find that no matter how blue the sky is, you can still be surprised (and soaked) by the rain.
